Sophia, our friend’s Old English Sheepdog, gave birth to TEN puppies on Thursday. Mom and babies are doing great. She had 5 girls and 5 boys. Quite a handful for her to feed and bathe. Did you know that when puppies are born they can’t walk, hear, see or pee? The Mom dog has to lick their bellies to force out the urine. Sophia knows exactly what to do. It is amazing that the instinct is there from the minute they are born. She was a great mother with her last litter and we know she will be great this time.
So congratulations Sophia, puppies and your human parents who are now on 24-7 watch. In a couple of weeks the world will be able to watch via web cam. I’ll post the link as soon as it is available.
